the advantage. the romney campaign says they're doing much better than john mccain's campaign. >> just getting back to florida real quickly, you mentioned mitt romney's events there, one exactly where you are at the moment. but what is he going to be focusing on specifically in florida? who is he targeting? >> reporter: he's going to be targeting early voters for sure, but also he's going to be targeting those remaining undecided voters. also one of the other missions today is to kind of excite the base, the republicans and conservatives here in florida and get them out to the polls. he's going to be joined in all three stops by senator marco rubio, the freshman senator here, a very popular republican. he's also going to talk about the economy. that's really his wheelhouse. yesterday's gdp report was pretty favorable. the obama campaign saying this is proof that the economy is starting to rebound, but mitt romney in a big speech in iowa on the economy said just the opposite. >> today we received the latest round of discouraging economic news. last quarter, our economy grew at just 2%. after th
from you in the voters in the state of virginia, so we sent cnn political contributor john avalon packing, and he hit the road on board the express to ask college students not just who they're voting for, but why. >> coming from home where i was raised by a single dad, i mean, he in the last three years that i have gone to college has apologized to me over and over again just for what a mess the economy has become, and he takes it very personally, and he says i'm sorry that you have such a mess to clean up. >> my opinion is the older folks beyond us they didn't do their job. they didn't manage the economy. they didn't manage things. they just spent, spent, spent. they didn't plan for us, and now we have to clean up the mess that they made, and i really believe that in the next ten, 15 years there's going to be a bunch of younger folks running for office to clean up the mess that was made. >> i think that you also see the older generation -- i think they all want reagan back, right? everyone invokes reagan as the idealistic. one way or the other, we -- i had never lived under reaga
and early voting ends day. our john zarella joins me now from plantation, florida. john, good morning. i understand that you voted yesterday. how long did you have to wait? >> reporter: yeah, you know, i did, and i'm really glad i voted yesterday because when i voted the line here was just back over there. i think, dominic, you can give them a shot of where i was standing, and it took me from the time i got in line to the time i walked out the door, two hours and ten minutes to vote, so if you look at where the line is now, which winds all the way around and down there, it's, we estimate, about 700 deep, and maybe about a four-hour wait for the folks to vote. it's nice out and a festive atmosphere. everybody is happy. if it gets hotter during the day that attitude and atmosphere might change a little bit, randi. we expect the long lines to last all day today because this is, as you mentioned, the last day of early voting in florida. >> i hope there are plenty of coffee and doughnuts to go around there. there was this effort, talked about it this morning, to get the early voting extended,
for an extension of the early voting period. doesn't look like that's going to happen. john zarrella is just north of miami. you voted yesterday before the last day. how did it go? >> reporter: yeah, and i probably should have voted a few days earlier than that as well. it was about two hours and ten minutes from just about where i'm standing now to the point where i was in and out and done voting. but public service announcement out there, for anybody in broward county who was planning to come here today, you might want to think about coming now, because the line is actually down, if you can imagine, from where it was a little while ago. it's probably still a three and a half hour wait, but it was just over four hours a while ago. so as we move towards the noon hour, it might be a good time to come on out here and vote. and as you mentioned, originally, four years ago, it was 14 days, but the state legislature cut it to only eight days of early voting. so thus these tremendous long lines that we're seeing here on the last day of early voting, and a lot of people are concerned that when it comes t
, as you know, is so unpredictable. on the phone from johns hopkins university in maryland seth the assistant professor for the department of geography and engineering. thank you for being with us. i know you developed a model to predict which areas will have the most power out nls. what did you find from that? >> when we ran our modaal with t the latest track update from last night impacts from northern virginia up through new jersey like you said and they'll extend quite a was in inland. >> i know you have been studying the relationship between hurricanes and power failures for seven years now. as you look at the model that you're viewing now, what is your biggest concern with this storm? >> well, it's going to impact a pretty large area with a high population density. a lot of people out, which is going to cause difficulty getting power restored because a lot of need for repair crews and utilities will have to get those in place beforehand. some of the outages will be pretty prolonged. >> do you think seven to ten days is, in fact, accurate? >> that seems like a pretty reason
, especially in pivotal battleground states like north carolina. john is traveling on the cnn elections express, the big beautiful bus, taking a pulse of the voters in the key states. john, you're in winston-salem, north carolina. what are the people there saying about the race? >> reporter: well, victor, you know, this is really one of the key swing districts in the swing state of north carolina, which president obama won by only 14,000 votes four years ago. so we've been talking to voters here. and it's fascinating. the american people are smart. even the folks who are swing voters, folks leaning romney are saying, look, one of the gentlemen we spoke to said, i hope this identity of the general election is where romney would be as president instead of moving to the right in the primaries that he had to do to get the nomination. one woman said the government considers me poor, but i'm concerned about the borrowing. there's concern about foreign policy under the romney administration. one woman said her brother's in the military. concerned about what that might mean for him. and one independent
't think this conversation will end on election day. >> we'll actually be talking more about it with john zarella who is there with those voters, and we'll talk with him coming up in the 9:00 hour here, 9:00 eastern. all right. so long voting lines, countless campaign ads, some americans have just had enough of the 2012 election, especially this little girl. >> i'm tired -- i'm tired of baronk obama and mitt romney. >> that's why you're crying. it will be over soon, abby. ...lean roasted chicken... and a creamy broth mmm i can still see you.
